Brad Kaaya Mocked to Arizona Cardinals in First Mock of the Season

The Arizona Cardinals find their quarterback of the future

NCAA Football: Miami at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals have yet to play a game and somehow the NFL Mock Drafts for 2017 have begun.

Matt Miller is the lead NFL Draft writer at Bleacher Report and gave us his first mock draft of the season and in doing so, he dove into what many Arizona Cardinals fans would love to see.

From the article:

The potential top-10 pick in this draft class, Brad Kaaya doesn't have a logical fit on paper when looking at the teams selecting early in the first round, as many of them have invested in the position recently in top rounds. That leaves teams such as New Orleans and Arizona looking for "quarterbacks of the future."

Kaaya is the smartest current college quarterback I've encountered. He has become a master of Mark Richt's offense and is able to distribute the ball on point all over the field. A pro-style passer out of Miami, Kaaya has a chance to improve his draft stock with a new offense in place. Throw in his natural feel for the game and an uncanny ability to get into the right play call at the line of scrimmage, and Kaaya may have a Jared Goff-esque climb up the board if he improves his production with a shaky cast around him.

Kaaya is the prototype Bruce Arians build of a quarterback, standing 6’4” and a shade under 210lbs, he has room to fill out his body.

He boasts a big arm, and he has shown the statistical improvement from year to year.

He is not a favorite of Revenge of the Birds draft writer, Justin Higdon, but there are many within the draft community that like what Kaaya brings to the table.

What do you think?

Would you like to see a quarterback like Kaaya brought in?
